I am home a lot, since leaving my job 4 years ago. I love my dog and cat and enjoy talking to them, but it would be great to have a real person to talk to during the day sometimes, lol! Would anyone else like to get and receive a phone call sometimes and feel less isolated at home?

A great way to meet people is through Do something, Learn something, Share something, Change something - Meetup.com. Most groups meet for after work activities but there are some walking groups and such that meet during the day. Or you could just sign up for a bunch of catalogs and wait for the telemarketers to start calling! JK

haha, that is definitely true (telemarketers), lol!!! Okay, thanks for the info. I was kind of hesitant on putting that post up, since you never know who replies. It is so hard to meet people who dont work though!! I will check out that site!! Are they mostly young people? I am 60.

I do trading during the day, so when I'm "working" I'm at home all the time. It gets old real quick a lot of the time, so I know how you feel. Buying low and selling high at ridiculous profits has a way of making up for it. Recession my foot, I'm making bank! Anyway shoot me a PM or something if you want.

I just had another idea. Post your home address on Craigslist under the personals and you will get lots of visitors!

Maybe a moderator can delete this thread since it does pose a potential safety risk to the OP.
